If today you take over the office of Jathedar Sahib of the Akal Takht in a democratic voting system and now you have 4 year term but have limited cash access because of let's say SGPC bureaucratic red

Very Nice replies !!! ----- 1. What will you do? I will get raw data from all over punjab before taking any step. First year, I will analyze the whole situation. I will think of a solution on how

I am amazed after how much we as Sikhs give it the big one about what should happen re panthic affairs that noone has even bothered to reply to this thread. Vjkk Vjkf 1. As Jathedar, I will focus on

Excellent thread..!!

Here are my 50 cents:

1. What will you do? (try to avoid making dictatorship or violent decisions - such as remove him or her, ban this or that).

- Preserve old manuscripts, calligraphy of sikh arts, heritage, stop this insane white wash marble tile renovations over artistic sikh heritage...if it needs to renovate..it should replaced by innovative methods of renovating sikh heritage building/gurdwara where original quality is not lost. Digitized all the old manuscripts, calligraphy of sikh arts.

- Hire an excellent Public media relation sevadars for each gurdwara abroad which is able to handle all media related inquiries

- Implement an auditor/compliance departments looking over maryada of maharaj and maharaj darbar, sachkhand darbar, these department should travel inside punjab /abroad quarterly/mid/yearly basic and audits an gurdwara randomly, reports back to Sri Akaal takth sahib with reports, recommendations. Gurdwara committe members found to be non compliant should be given recommendations and deadlines if not met should be exposed on sikh media (See- below)

- Monthly if not weekly webcast/t.v broadcast over the air- sikh media sikh channels/ alpha punjabi of progress reports from Sri Akaal takth covering various types of issues, renovation plans of all gurdwaras, compliance reports of gurdwaras inside punjab and abroad. Best way to enforce any rules is not by force but through media (bad advertisement) so gurdwaras are forced to comply (as sad it may sound - losing business its all about that these days)

- Implement another maryada on satkar of maharaj and of maharaj's darbar i.e- mandatory perhaadars(paid or sevadars) to maintain sanity in maharaj darbar.

- Bringing various different school of thoughts ( vidya from udasi, nirmale, sevapanthis, taksal, nihangs, singh sabha) within Sikhism into one centralized university where sikh theology is taught for at least 5 years(degree) before authorizing anyone to be parcharaik/katha vachik/kirtani/shastarvidyakar/saastarvidyakar.....Sikh theology course should be spread across various different grades, classes, courses, at the final course - covers all different school of thoughts, history, kirtani reetas/shastarvidya. Vidya shouldn't stop at 5 years, after 5 years, one can take specialized courses, if one is keen towards explore more either keertan vidya, shastar vidya, saastar vidya, one can take advance courses like that....off course in the course of learning, one should never forget simran, mandatory daily 1 hr session of naam simran chanting at beginning (done in a way it resonates the chanting all surrounding - clear and in one pace).

- Sri Akaal Takht sahib sevadars should lobby politicians/indian politicans abroad to push sikh/human agenda- equality for all, exposing human rights violation of people across the globe, bring awareness of sikhi saroop in work field, mainstream.

- Sevadars should get best of best innovators/innovation companies to help/maintain sikh infrastructure ( gurdwaras abroad(including pakistan), heritage sites), i believe we should let companies bid among each other to fetch best qualities, best price.

1. females wear keskis- enough of this nonsense that only males wear dastars and it is "optional" for females

2. change in stance of meat in rehat maryada, regardless of the method of killing it is not allowed

3. more lareevar saroops. and manglacharan should be in correct position

4. Saroops should be written/ printed however someone wants (ie with or without ragmala)

5. Maintaining satkaar of Sri Guru Granth Sahib, those who violate should be punishment

6. Get rid of the corrupt politicians who have no clue about what is best for sikhs.

so basically we go back to how sikhi was in the good old days.. :cool2:

1. What will you do?

Serve the needy- the starving, the downtrodden, and the ill.

Serve truth to whoever will listen.

2. What major positive or negative changes you will plan to bring? Help the poor get into work, provide shelter for the poor, feed the hungry, help them get established- whether they are white black, chinese or red.

3. What will be your 4 major policies or your signature ideas

1. Call on the Sangat worldwide to step forward and donate to the poor and hungry.

2. Call on the sangat to step forward and help the needy to get jobs, get shelter and grow or make own food etc.

3. Disregard all rituals and teach all to purify the heart, of the importance of silencing the mind which in turn gets rid of the 5 theives and to embrace all as One as per Gurbani.

4. Provide shelter for the downtrodden in the gurdwarras, every extra room to be filled with those who have no place to stay until they are established.

4. What changes will you prefer or plan to bring in SGPC? (Some facts: There are 175 members, mostly voted by rural folks. They are official holders of annual 600 crore budget).

Outlaw corruption, bribery, theivery etc, alcohol and taking advantage of others, jadoo etc within the membership.

5. Create your own question and answer it by yourself !!

Why is there a shortage of Brahmgyanis?

Because people have no idea how much they procrastinate or are lost in trishna(ego of seva, seva for glory of self, not for god).

My first step would be to make sure every gurdwara in the world has a copy of the 1945 sikh rehat maryada and make sure it conducts itself according to that and that the gurdwara do not deviate from this.

hmm that is interesting, but they should have made a rehit maryada before the singh sabha movement, so that the maryada would have gone into the gurdwaras with the singhs that replaced the mahants.

However, how would this be done in gurdwaras not under SGPC control such as takht Hazoor Sahib and takht Patna Sahib, or in the dals?

How would sikhs be convinced to give up puraatan maryadas and follow the SGPC maryada?

Also should SGPC maryada not be approved properly by Singhs, as it was not totally approved when it was installed to be used?

Some questions!

On another note, we could make an Akal Takht takeover anniversary day dating back to 1920?!

    • I would highly recommend doing one thing at home. Once a week, pick any week, do kes ishnaan and make Kadah prasaad at home.  Many here may / may not agree with me, but make it according to Taksaal Maryaad is the best way as it's the traditional way of preparing it, going back to Guru Ji's time.  Nothing too difficult. Get Iron Kadahi (fryer) and iron saucepan (make sure it's NOT Non stick but classic or normal iron) 3 steel bowls (caulia). Butter, flour, sugar in equal measures. Pop equal measure of water per serving (so let's say five ingredients are 1kg that'll be 5kg water) in the saucepan let it boil on high heat first then low after adding sugar in the hot water. Then let butter melt in the kadahi before inserting flour, mix and keep on medium heat. IMPORTANT! At this stage start Japji Sahib the paat very, very slow. Then do Jaap Sahib. The flour mixture must go dark brown. Add the heated water mixture then stir until the mixture looks golden brown.  Cover the Kadahi with a white cloth and leave on a table placed with a cloth. As it's cooling down do Anand Sahib (40 Stanzas) then do Ardaas. Whatever you ask for your situation will become 1000 times better. After Ardaas and before distribution of Prassad to all family members, you can even do more Baanias over it (Chandi d vaar 5 times is favoured) this up keeps the degh and gives it an extra umph. However, Mool Mantar and Gurmantar too is good enough. Some will even get a steel thali and five steel bowls to take out for panj pyaare. This too must b covered with a white cloth. However, a few mins later the prasaad in the five caulia can be inserted back into the main bowl.  NOW the Prassad can b distributed to fam members, friends, colleagues etc etc.   
    • Academic who tried importing child sex doll from China avoids jail after police found child abuse images on his computer following customs tip-off Malcolm Young was put on the radar of Northumbria Police buying the sex doll  61-year-old's purchase was intercepted by Border Force officials, raising alarm  Following an eight day long trial, a jury found Young guilty of all five counts  An academic has been caught with child abuse images after buying a child sex doll from China that looked like his ex-girlfriend. Tech professional Malcolm Young was put on the radar of Northumbria Police when he attempted to import the 3ft2, flat-chested doll, with clothing and accessories, in 2017. The 61-year-old's purchase was intercepted by Border Force officials who told detectives of their concerns about the package.     Officers visited Young's home in the East Woodburn area of Northumberland to question him about the doll and seized his computers and phone.   The electronics were reviewed and officers uncovered indecent images of children on his computer that Young had tried to delete. Young, of East Woodburn, Northumberland, was charged with four counts of making indecent images of children and one count of tax evasion, concerning the doll. He denied his guilt and tried to convince a jury at Newcastle Crown Court that he purchased the small doll, not based on its likeness to a child but because it resembled an athletic female body type. Prosecutor Graham O'Sullivan told the court: 'He said he had ordered a doll that looked like an ex-girlfriend, that he had cancelled, and had not ordered any child sex doll.' Young had also claimed that the deleted images found on his device were not his but may have been made by people visiting his home while attending parties. Following an eight day long trial, a jury found Young guilty of all five counts. The court heard the charges related to one Category A image, the most serious, two Category B and 35 Category C. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail, suspended for two years, and was ordered to carry out rehabilitation and has been subjected to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order. Also, he must pay £9,480 prosecution costs. At his sentence hearing today, Christopher Knox, defending, said Young, who had been living in Spain and has a boat there, made his money through tech industries. But Mr Knox added: 'He has had a very successful career that has been totally destroyed. 'He won't be able to be employed by anyone ever again in the fields in which he has excelled.' Judge Stephen Earl sentenced Young to 18 months imprisonment, suspended for two years, with rehabilitation requirements. Young was even photographed with former Prime Minister who came to the opening of his company e-Therapeutics. The judge said Young had 'lost a lot', including a 'chancellorship at the University of Newcastle', due to his offending and added: 'His fall from grace is long and hard'. The judge added: 'This whole issue came to light as a result of the fact the defendant had ordered what can only be described as a child sex doll.' Judge Earl said Young had claimed in his defence he had not wanted a child sex doll and had cancelled what he ordered, which was a doll he 'wanted to look like Dawn, his former partner'. Young was even photographed with former Prime Minister who came to the opening of his company e-Therapeutics     The judge said Young had produced pictures of 'Dawn' during the trial, who was described as a 'small adult'. Detective Constable Alison Felton led the investigation for Northumbria Police and said after the conviction Young thought he was 'above the law'. She said: 'This has been a long and protracted investigation involving the making of indecent images and the importation of a child-like sex doll. 'We are committed to making sure that offenders are brought to justice, no matter who they are or however long it takes. 'Young thought that he was above the law. He has taken no responsibility for his crimes and the jury saw through the preposterous account he gave to the court.'   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10025733/Academic-tried-importing-child-sex-doll-China-avoids-jail.html
    • I'm not sure we could list all the ways they move heroin. I mean. Trebuchet, underground tunnel, boat, plane, car, umbrella, carrier pigeon.  Drugs all but move themselves. You just watch them do so until they come lock you up. And collect that fat revenue you collected for them.
